Southern Public Power District has opened its 2021 application period for Utility Lineworker Scholarships. This program offers scholarships to students attending an accredited utility line study program. Scholarships
amount to $1,000 for students pursuing a one-year program, or $2,000 for those attending a two-year program.
Applicants must currently reside within Adams, Franklin, Hall, Hamilton, Kearney, Merrick or Phelps Counties in Nebraska. Scholarship winners will be required to serve a 12-week summer internship with SPPD in cooperation with the school attended.
The deadline for scholarship applications is April 1, 2021. The application form can be accessed from SPPD’s website.
We encourage potential students to reach out to the program of their choosing as soon as possible. These programs can fill up quickly, and it is best to enroll in order to assure a spot will be ready for the next academic year.
